There are many kinds of materials used in the production of insoles, and the insoles made of different materials have their own functions and characteristics, and the cushioning and comfort of the insoles are also largely determined by the materials used in their production. The following insole custom manufacturer Foamwell will share with you several common insole materials.
When it comes to cushioning and comfort insole materials, the best is mainly made of foam insoles.
Foam material itself also has a difference between soft and hard, almost no cushioning, soft and medium soft or semi-hard material combination can make the insole feel comfortable. The disadvantage of foam insoles is that they flatten relatively easily, depending largely on the weight and activity level of the person wearing the insole and the materials used.
For example, our insoles for diabetics are a combination of a medium to soft blue bottom foam and a softer pink foam top. The top is easily compressible and helps to accommodate a bit of the plantar surface. The material is known to be non-toxic and anti-allergenic - two features important for sore feet that are prone to ulcers, blisters and calluses.
Neoprene and cloth
Another type of insole is made of neoprene and cloth. Our neoprene material is very soft (blue, pink, black) and the gray color is more suitable for heavy people or very active people.
Neoprene insoles tend to feel warmer than other types of insoles and should be combined with other foams to make them thicker, adding blue foam to the bottom will provide more cushioning depending on the thickness added.
If there is not much room for insoles thicker than 1/4? ( 6 mm) and want them to be a little stronger. Then combine them with the EVA foam.
EVA foam is a little stiffer than the blue foam we use on our insoles, and either EVA foam or blue foam can be used with a top material made from cowhide (leather) or faux leather (vinyl) for added durability.
The level of cushioning depends on the thickness of the foam used.
Always keep in mind the maximum thickness of the insole that fits your shoes without being too tight or narrow and making them uncomfortable.
